Really love this place. Casual dining with great food. Especially recommended for anyone with coeliac. The diner gives great confidence that gluten free is actually gluten free. Desserts are great for everything except the waistline. 😊

Really yummy food. It was very busy and quite noisy which shows how popular it is. The decor is brilliant.
